St. Jerome’s Church celebrates Good Friday on South Bronx Streets

Members of the Mott Haven community join St. Jerome’s congregation in a bilingual observance of Stations of The Cross. Catholics around the world celebrate this time-worn ritual, during which worshippers follow a procession down local streets in commemoration of Christ’s last hours. St. Jerome’s church was founded by an Irish immigrant in 1869, and now serves a predominately Mexican community in the South Bronx.
